I'm perfectly willing to accept otherwise as I never followed them too closely, but isn't that a TP rather than the Typhoon?
From the year they suddenly went from doing just Typhooons to doing the TP, LE and DD all at once?

I thought even the latest of Typhoon's gusset stopped a bit further up the downtube and had a more gentle curve between toptube and seatstays.

Doesn't matter either way, but curious as to the accuracy of my memories now :lol:

You could well be correct, I just remember that particular frame being prone to cracking/snapping at the end of that top/down tube gusset :D 

The older frames were lovely and strong

I'm referring to the year of production when the model name listed on sites became TP rather than Typhoon. 

They're of the same lineage, yes, but I was asking about the distinction between the 08 Typhoon and TP.

It was the 20s that snaped due to the bashplate mounts :)
